|Research summary||Wound healing after caesarean section|
I am currently working with the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology, and the Women's and Children's Health department, to investigate the involvement of subcutaneous adipose tissue in wound healing.
We are looking into how variations in this tissue may impact on the healing of surgical wounds after caesarean delivery. We will also be investigating the effects of potential therapeutic cytokines in improving wound healing.
